Experimental Tomato & Onion Relish

In preparation for something to spice up burgers, had a go at some home-made relish/ketchup, but it is very much a work in progress – would welcome any suggestions.

  • A tin of chopped tomatoes.
  • 1 finely-chopped onion
  • 100 g chopped up pickled gherkins.
  • 1 garlic clove fine-chopped.
  • 75 ml spirit vinegar. (White wine vinegar probably better, but I’m allergic to the sulphite preservative in it.)
  • Teaspoon of sugar.
  • Flat teaspoon each of coriander, mace and paprika
  • Half a level teaspoon of Tabasco sauce

Soft-fried the onion with the garlic, put everything in a pot and simmered it for half-an-hour, then whizzed it smooth with a hand blender. Smelled pretty pungent during the simmering, but the final product was not unpleasant. Going to use it in my next recipe: pheasant burgerwiches.

These ingredients made enough to fill a 400 ml jar.
